Bear Grylls is well known for his propensity for nudity in the wild, so it's not really a shock that he was in the buff when he proposed to his wife several years ago.

The adventurer recently opened up to Piers Morgan about the special moment, saying he and his lady were skinny dipping when he pulled the ring out of the most unlikely of places only to be promptly slammed by a rogue wave.

"I pulled out the ring from my butt cheeks. She was standing there going, 'What are you doing?' She was in a towel and a massive Atlantic roller came and I went, 'Will you...' -- and it went -- took me up to the beach. I had all the seaweed and I was spinning around. So I tried it again and in this sort of moment of heavy sedation she said yes," he said.

The couple married in 2000, and Grylls says he still has a tendency to strip down when he gets near water.

"If there’s a substantial body of water around and nobody’s looking, I’m often quite tempted to strip off and dive in," he said during the interview.
